  11. I will always remember Phillip from my childhood. My brother, cousins and I would frequently stay with my Grandparents, the Kelley’s, next door to the Anderson’s. Every Summer for sure and some Holidays too, we’d be together. That’s how Donna and I became BFF’s. As kids , all eight of us, would play endless games of Fox and Hounds, Mother May I , Red Light, Green Light, Hide and Seek or Freeze Tag. Sometimes a scavenger hunt my aunt would make up. Or all loaded up in the car for regular trips to the Fork with Mamaw to swim, explore, roast hot dogs and marshmallows. We were a gang of kids that had a blast all hanging together and we had not a care in the world. Memories of your husband, dad and grandfather’s childhood and mine, I will always cherish. Prayers for comfort for you Barb, your children and grandchildren. I’m so deeply sorry for this tragic and sudden loss for all of you.

  15. I spent all my summers with my grandparents and the Anderson family. When I think of the happiest moments of my life it was there in Junction City. I admired and looked up to Phillip and Punkin , they were a mess! I can see Phillips face in my mind right now when he was 16. I love the entire Anderson family! Very special to me and close to my heart. God bless us all!
